A day early but I’ll be out of town tonight (off to Santa Fe to hear Isabel Allende with my son, Broadus, who loves her children’s stories, and a van full of international students from UWC-USA). And besides, this is one of the paintings I am currently working on. I’m interested to see what you see in this work-in-progress. Best wishes for a great, productive, safe, happy week.

    Is it teeth
    are there teeth
    Or is it an imagining of a fear?
    What is pleasure
    is it attainable?
    by giving and seeing
    taking and leaving
    or is it beauty
    and balanced
    who takes the fire?
    and are they watching?

    This is the sort of painting of yours I love best. The magical kind.

    Hey Callie, great to hear from you! I’ll post the poem. GOOD TO SEE YOU’RE letting that creative juice flow.

    gautami, that’s a nice match. I’ll put it up. Thanks.

    amuirin, i do so want to please you. i’ll see what i can do about the magic. it feels good to get back in the studio again after a long interruption due to work and family stuff. it’s funny how naturally it comes back.`

    Glenn, Found the other attempts in my spam folder. Don’t know how you get there but will watch it more carefully.

    I guess they eat spam a lot in Camelot as Monty Python sang in MP & The Holy Grail. We all hope to see one of your paintings soon to have more dragons in it; love those fire breathbreathers.

    A bit slower than normal, but here’s mine…

  8. Surprisingly, this painting makes me think of Domesticity

    Meant to ask…. what’s your UWC connection? I’m a former UWCer myself, hence the curiosity!

    For those who might want to peruse my poem for this prompt, a Classics professor pal pointed out that my Latin sucked, so Equis Ethereal has become EQUUS AETHEREUS. Looks better now.
